Great time on FOS
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Port Canaveral (Orlando)
Cabin- we had a balcony on deck 6- great service from our cabin steward all week.
Dining- we had the late dinner, enjoyed our tablemates. The food was a bit better than on my cruise last year on the Independence. Our waiter was very blah, though- not attentive nor was he very personable. That said, all the other ship personnel were great. Had dinner one night in Portofino- excellent! Windjammer for breakfast- and dining room one morning.
Excursions- Coco Cay was okay- wear water More shoes as the coral rocks are killer. BBQ lunch was fair, you really go for the beach though. On St. Thomas took the Trunk Bay/St. Johns excursion. Loved the beach but too little time. Would have liked to wander around a bit. On St. Martins we did an excursion with Bernard's Tours, with 3 other ladies. Since the morning included a tropical downpour, it was nice to be able to customize our tour. The sun did come out and we made it to Maho to catch the incoming planes and enjoy the beach- try it once.
Entertainment- did not do any shows except the ice show (really good) and the Quest (very funny adult game show). Loved Mike the piano man in Schooners. Went to adult karoke but they need a larger venue.
With 3 sea days, the pools were quite crowded, especially the Solarium pool. The dastardly lounge chair hogs were out in full force- you know who you are!
Overall, can't say enough about the great service and friendly attitude of both staff and passengers. We did not hear complainers/whiners/malcontents at all!
Disembarkation- the easiest ever- fast, efficient! Less
